This year was one of change for StartupNation: we restructured our website to serve you better, featuring improved article layout and author profiles. Our ongoing drive to provide readers with articles, audio and (coming soon in 2017!) native video that interests entrepreneurs, startups and small business owners most is one we will continue to strive for in the year to come.
Throughout 2016, we brought you a brand new mobile responsive website design and improved user navigation, exclusive book excerpts from best-selling authors, and continued to provide the highest quality content that today’s entrepreneurs expect from StartupNation.com.
Below, find a few highlights from our 2016 archives, which include articles written by industry-leading contributing writers, researchers, thought leaders and best-selling authors, compiled into our Year in Review:
